Battlefield 1 Open Beta resolution upscaling feature is causing performance drop. The game offers players an option to scale the game at a higher resolution compared to the one it is being displayed at. However, it is causing performance drops for many users.
In fact, I myself faced the same issues last night while playing the open beta.
While this feature is a very useful in many games, the option in Battlefield 1 Open beta is misleading so as a result many users are incorrectly setting it up.
By default, the resolution upscaler is set at 42% which is what we consider 100% or our native resolution. Why did someone think showing 100% as 42% in Battlefield 1 will be a good idea? Anyways, This means if you crank it up to 50% or 100% your rig will cry for help.
Hence, performance drop.
To fix this issue you need to set it back to 42% and not mess with it. If you wish to make sure 42% is indeed your native resolution, open the console and type “render.drawscreeninfo 1.”
Battlefield 1 Open Beta is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Early access codes were sent to Insiders yesterday so they had one day head start on the action. So far, Battlefield 1 lives up to the hype and is the best shooter we have played this year.
Multiplayer is great and now we need to see the singleplayer mode. It is safe to say that the decision to go back to World War was correct.
Battlefield 1 will release on consoles and PC on October 21.
